, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have northern virginia, which is about a third of the state's population, now produces 30% of the vote, if not more. that has a low-debate. that particular population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has the people with the highest educational levels in the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to and tidewater, roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is both white-collar and blue-collar, also has a large african-american population. and it also ha
minute push in virginia. >> what happens to members of the military who are focused on defense cuts? a look at [ mitt romney ] there are two very different paths the count can take. ones a path represented by the pre ident, which, at the end of four years, it'd mean we'd have $20 trillion in debt. i'll get people back to work with 12 million new jobs. i'm gonna make sure that we get people off of food stamps not by cutting the program but by getting them good jobs. i'll work with you. i'll lead you in an open and honest way and to make sure that we all together maintain america as the hope of the earth. i mitt romney, and i approve this message. >> welcome back to our battleground for special. we're breaking down this close race with the correspondence from politico. we just saw a piece on the ground game. who has the best ground game? >> that is good question. it will be better for republicans than 2008. we do not know whether it will be gold standard good or what. it is hard to match the obama campaign. >> who was the best in virginia? >> the obama campaign beca
base and pensacola naval station, he would talk about the potential defense cuts under sequestration and obama trimming back. we are about to hit the national anthem and i probably shouldn't talk over that. and another significant thing happening today. early voting begins in florida today. get out and vote before election day. historically republicans had the edge with absentee vote and democrats had the vote with them voting early. >> john, thank you very much and continue our live team coverage with ed henry in new hampshire with the obama campaign. ed, what can you tell us. >> this is part of the president's final case to the american people. and monday is putting the pedal to the medal and he will be down in florida and starting and going late sunday and be down there on monday. starting here in new hampshire. bottom line is the adout. and his case with mitt romney. remember the old positions he said. and you go in to vote or in election day. bottom line they think mitt romney flip flopped and reminded he took conservative position and moving back to middle. romney campaign said
with the increase taxes that we would see, do you reversed. as well as the deep defense cuts, which is something that would really impact the area dramatically. george mason and stephen fuller, one of the preeminent economists in our area said the defense cuts could cause a recession in virginia and almost double the unemployment numbers. bridget has been several -- rigid has been scary -- very successful in having a low unemployment rate. jobs is the number one priority. that is why we are very courageous that the numbers of supporters in for mitt romney this year. >> does your canada have to win the county to win virginia? guest: i don't know we have to, i expect we will. it was only a narrow margin that president obama won loudoun, the last time and it really was an aberration. virginia republicans have been winning loudoun county in 2009 when governor bob mcdonnell won this area, and then in 2010, of course our congressman frank wolfe, he is extremely popularhe is of course on the ticket this year. he always wins resoundingly. in 2011, we swept all of the state and local seats here in this y
arm of the nation's defense. but in the daily activities that we conduct, we do a lot of things that are important not only to the members of the military and the members of this country, but that have a significant effort in advancing the well-being of others in the world. so, we tend to think of the obvious things. we stand for freedom of choice. we stand for people being able to go about their lives free from oppression and things we know a lot about. but in the process of doing that, we had a large group of people and the department of defense. they need medical care, and because many of them are working at a very high operations tempo and under a lot of stress, we want them to be in the absolute highest level of health that we can possibly provide. and so, we have a very, very healthy group of folks, and we work overtime to make sure they stay healthy. in the process of doing that, we've learned a lot about people, diseases, physiology and on and on and on. one of the things we have to offer, we in this case i believe being the department of defense in this country is shari
of the federal government is national defense. and i see some veterans with their hats on. all the veterans, raise your hand. \[applause] thank you. thank you for your service to our country and thank your families as well. and we need to have america keep our promises to our veterans and their families for the benefits they've errand. more over, we have new threats from washington t. sequestration deal which is threatening 2,000 jobs in virginia and our readiness. what has the senate done? absolutely nothing. no budgets for the last three and a half years. a lot of members of congress shouldn't get paid if they don't make appropriations. what does president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virginia whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. \[applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a thriving economy where businesses are prospering an
, and defense, six out of 10 federal dollars. what are the tough choices that you are willing to make when it comes to prioritizing cuts in benefits or defense, because it is clear that the only three areas you can make substantive differences, and for the tea party, the people who put you in office, state how you would make the tough choices. where do you cut? >> you included the overseas contingency operations. now we are now out of iraq, that does not count. my opponent said he would not support. cut the defense budget over the next 10 years. it is the sequestration that i am against. 62% of the budget is net interest on the debt. one of the things, stop with a payroll tax cut gimmicks, because we are driving social security into a deficit situation. we have to look at how we can reform and protect and preserve programs like medicare. >> a question for you, mr. murphy. any serious discussion to look at programs like this and serious cuts? where does it start? >> you cannot look at these three in a vacuum. it is a problem, and that is why i want to get the congress, because i think i can
. talk to your hospital, and they will tell you defensive medicine occurs right here and in every community across america. if they make a mistake, they know they are going to be taken to court, but it is the doctors doing two procedures instead of one or checking into a hospital instead of outpatient service. we can talk about health care plans, the opportunity to buy health insurance. we can talk about the opportunity of allowing bigger pools to be created, expanding programs so we have more family practice. these are ideas we are willing and ready to prepare. we are not allowed to. >> senator tester, there are polls that show that montana and steve not like affordable care act. how can you sell it? >> that is the bottom line were you have a pre-existing condition. i am glad the congressman talk about selling across the state lines, about increasing general practitioners and family practice in the health-care bill. there is a lot of stuff in the health-care bill. i always get accused of not reading it. the health-ine isn' care bill extends health care for eight years. the mistak
of defense is correct we are doing quarterbacking. if they would tell us more we would quit our monday morning quarterbacking. he didn't have the awareness to commit forces, look he had the situational awareness that the embassy was being attacked -- the consulate was being attacked in benghazi and should have had aircraft over there as soon as possible. john mccain is correct, they didn't have an alert status. we still could have gotten airplanes were armed or not over the consulate annex within probably a couple hours. we should have done that. we didn't even try. we didn't do anything. that is the very disturbing thing. we should have had alert aircraft. first we should have had a global hawk over benghazi and tripoli on 9/11 the anniversary. they announced the day before that we should take radical islamists should take advantage and defeat the americans because they killed binlibbi in afghanistan. we should have had intelligence surveillance and assets right over libya. >> jamie: you are saying we should have begun the operation to protect everyone even before 9/11. we had enough
the annex. former assistant secretary of defense and author of the book "into the fire" joins us. good evening, bing. >> good evening, greta. >> greta: i know you have been critical of how the government handled this. tell me. >> i think today a good a lot worse. the situation is very serious and most of the press doesn't want to touch it because many of them are cheerleaders for president obama. beyond that you valu have to lt what is going on and that is that president obama today said that he gave an order to everyone while the attack was going on to do everything they could to secure the personnel. that is really big because that means that those who were turning down ty woods when was asking for the help were going against the orders of the president of the united states. and a chairman of the joint chiefs of staff doesn't take an order from the president when says do everything and not put that in writing and send it out to the chain of command. so if that actually happened the way president obama today said it happened there is a paper trail. and i think people reasonably enough
questions are. was he directed by the president or the secretary of defense? he said, no. >> shannon: as you know, there are very few people above a four-star general, that narrows the field of who has the answers. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: hurricane sandy is expected to make landfall on tuesday morning, around the delaware coast with storm urges up to 8 feet. we are feeling it up and down the east coast. states of emergency have been declared from north carolina through new england. and this rare hybrid storm that follows sandy may wreak even more havoc. we have more live team coverage. we go to the fox extreme weather center and rick. >> reporter: it's all one storm, becoming one big storm. a storm like we have never seen. if you live anywhere from illinois to mississippi, to the east, you are going to feel the effects of this storm. very big already. you can see the cloud cover from canada to south carolina, rain has been consistent in the outer banks and we are seeing rain in parts of new jersey and much of the state of pennsylvania. this is th

:00 p.m., the president, vice-president and defense secretary, leon panetta, meet in the oval office. >> that's an hour after the attacks began. at that time they would have had a drone and a video feed from a drone being fed back to washington. >> fox news national security correspondent, jennifer griffith. >> the problem is don't forget that video from a drone is taken from an incredible distance. ground.t have clarity as to who you see figures moving. it's hard to tell friendly from faux. >> 6:00 7'm. another e-mail states that a terror group with ties to al qaeda claimed responsibility on facebook and twitter. administration officials later say a posting on social media and is not in and of itself evidence. 11:5 p.m. another chilling e-mail. subject line, benghazi shelter location also under attack. the next morning, september 12, president obama addresses the nation from the rose garden and what he says or doesn't say will become a hotly debated issue over the next days and weeks. >> since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all
, the department of defense was ready to fly in cargo planes that could be loaded with trucks and equipment to help local power companies get up and running faster. but recovery will be a long, hard road for many communities. there's a lot of work ahead. if you've been directly impacted by this storm and need temporary assistance getting back on your feet, you can call 1-800-621-fema, or apply at disasterassistance.gov. if you know folks who are still without power, please spread the word and let them know. and if you don't live in an affected area and want to help, supporting the red cross is the best and fastest way. this week, we have been humbled by nature's destructive power. but we've been inspired as well. for when the storm was darkest, the heroism of our fellow citizens shone brightest. the nurses and doctors at nyu medical center who evacuated fragile newborns, carrying some down several flights of stairs. the firefighters in queens who battled an inferno from flooded streets, and rescued people from an apartment building by boat. the coast guard crews from north carolina who saved a sink
. that was not at the state level that was at the federal level. and that was primarily due to an increase in defense spending. i think that that was the biggest surprise and a pleasant surprise. >> brown: but on the other hand this is still very slow growth, right? >> yes, that's true. when youompare it to the, rt of theind of growth rate you should see for the economy at this stage of a recovery, it should be closer to 3%. we're the 2%. >> it looks as though a new area of weakness was in exports. what's going on there? >> yeah, there was clearly a slowdown, a negative number on expert-- exports. that is primarily due to the fact that we're doing less business with china. the economy of china has slowed. the economy of europe has slowed. and that showed up in the numbers. >> brown: i'm not going to me yointo a polical ansys but fro where youit does it look like there's something here for both candidates? >> yeah, i think there is something there for both sides. i think on the one side president obama can certainly point to the fact that the economy did better in the third quarter than it did in the second qu
in that capacity and he is one of the few republicans who looks at the defense budget and can make a strong case for ways to cut spending on defense. he is intriguing to a lot of voters as a result. about this race for a second. guest: ed is one of the hardest working people if not the hardest in the coming negation. joe coors has put in $3 million into his own race and he is from the coors beer family. he has made a point of saying that he built his own fortune in the manufacturing business. they are also competing in a newly we don. -- a newly redrawn district. it includes points west of the city of denver. all accounts are that the congressman has a fight on his hands but he is up to the task. this is the third congressional district, southern colorado and what we call the western slopes, west of the continental divide. that has incumbent tipton and sal pace. pace is also from the state house of representatives. that's another to keep an eye on. host: next caller, jan from louisville, tenn. caller: no one ever mentions ever mentionsbenghazi. -- about benghazi. i have not read any newspaper ar
] let's repeal the patriot act. [cheers and applause] i would have never signed the national defense authorization act allowing for you and i as u.s. citizens to be arrested and detained without being charged. that's the reason we fought wars in this country. [cheers and applause] i promise to submit a balanced budget to congress in the year 2013. that is a 1.4 trillion reduction in federal spending. if we don't do this now, we are going to find ourselves in a monetary collapse and a monetary collapse very simply is when the dollars we have in our pockets don't buy a thing because of the acome anying inflation -- because of the accompanying inflation that goes along with every dollar we spend. thathe only candidate wants to eliminate income tax, eliminate corporate tax, abolish the i.r.s. and replace all of that with one federal consumption tax, the fair tax. i think it is the answer to our exports, it is the answer to american jobs. [applause] >> in what way way does the war on drugs impact americans? that was submitted by jeff tanguay via facebook. >> the war on drugs has been an u
occasions they were told to stand down and to not go in there. defense secretary leon panetta said we simply didn't have enough information for individuals to go into that zen. what do you make of all of this? >> we're in the stage now of conflicting explanation by the administration. we are long past the point of confusion about what happened on the terrorist side. we know it was a planned terrorist attack. this mohammed video explanation which was always foolish is out of the picture. but now the administration is saying different things. this fox report about the cia denying additional help telling its agents there to stand down was contradicted yesterday by the cia itself. so general petraeus is saying it wasn't the cia who denied the request for additional assistance, implying it was somebody at a higher level of authority. and the point you make about defense secretary panetta is also important. jason chaffets, congressman from utah said last night on the hannity show that he spoke with general carter ham, the commanding general of the after infantry -- africon. he said i was never ask
defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy, i also remind everyone that we are also going to be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 2012 was 570,000, will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 2017. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main thing is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix. i always talk about my three rio stats that the secretary of army and i pay a lot of attention to. end strength, modernization, and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. we have to keep those in balance. we want to learn from the lessons of past draw downs. some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance. because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army. which leads to a hobbled army. we talk about task force smith and its impact and unpreparedness as was asked to go into korea post-world war ii. we don't want that to happen again
dug himself into a hole and he felt there was about it -- >> word in defense of john sununu. he has laid out a formulation that colin powell should be proud supporting barack obama because they are of the semis, which means that, obvusly, john sununu, being white, is proud to be supporting mitt romney did john sununu is, believe me, and i've known him for a long time -- he is writing a new book called "dale carnegie was wrong," and it will not be a bestseller. [laughter] >> everybody has crazy uncles in the attic, and romney has john sununu, and he has donald trump, who is offering $5 million if the president will release -- >> he won't keep senate in the attic. -- sununi is in the attic. >> colby is right, they are putting him out regularly. they are not putting out stavridis or spokespersons that are not speaking with the unspoken. obama had a good line about, on the leno show. >> "it also g- all goes back when we were playing soccer in kenya." probably the best line i've heard the president delivered in the whole campaign. >> unfortunately, people out there will say, "c, i told y
at the defense of our country. but it is not just the military. there's some things -- look at our transportation system that government does better, where the role of government is necessary to bring all of us together because what is a government? the government is just us working together to solve problems and to create a better america. so this anti-government rhetoric from paul ryan, from the tea party, hating government and from mitt romney, that's what he's all about. hurricane sandy proves that is dangerous. not just wrong. dangerous. dangerous for america. think of hurricane sandy. speaking of, we'll talk to ray stojic from the weather channel next on the "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." live on your radio and current tv. >>only on current tv. dose of politics from a fresh perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your high
-- [inaudible] and given that we have very recently, only last night, met with the secretary of defense. would the prime minister meet with me and other interested members to discuss this issue? >> i'm always happy to talk to colleagues about this issue, as i know the ministry of defense and the secretary of state is. as he knows, we've had to make difficult decisions to put in place the future structure of the army with 82,000 regular soldiers and a larger reserve of 32,000 territorial army soldiers. i think that is right. clearly we've had to make some decisions about the regiments and battalions, and we were trying to save as many as possible. i think the proposals have taken that into account but, of course, the defense secretary will go on listening to representations. >> [inaudible] >> mr. speaker, will the prime minister confirm that the changes to child benefit due to be introconstitutioned in january -- introduced in january this year, next year, is -- that the cost of that, the overall cost is very much over 100 million pounds? >> the changes that we are making to child benefit where
is doing well, everywhere. he is is really hitting hard defense spending in southeastern, virginia. the tidewater area where you have a lot of defense contractors and a lot of military families. hitting on all of the cylinders in virginia right now. >> sean: last quick question, does romney ryan take wisconsin? >> i think they have a good shot at doing so. the numbers are looking good. president obama is spending a lot of time there which shows he is deeply worried about it. wouldn't be spending time if he were getting away with a state easily. one other thing, too, the president is going to make a stop in superior wisconsin in the northwestern part of the state. i'm convinced he thinks minnesota is at play. that is a place you go in order to affect duluth, minnesota. i think it is a very smart play on the president's part. not only a part of wisconsin that is important but also saying i need to get there because i may be seeing minnesota slip away from me as well. >> sean: i'm ready for game day. let's get it on. thanks for being with us. >> let's do it. >> sean: we now know that
himself into a hole and then feeling nervous about it. >> award in defense of john sununu. he basically had a formulation that colin powell should be proud of supporting barack obama because they belong to the same race, which means that obviously, john sununu who is white is proud to be supporting mitt romney. john sununu is -- believe me, i have known him for a long time -- he is writing a book called "dale carnegie was wrong." [laughter] and it will not be a bestseller. >> everybody is crazy uncles in the attic, and romney as john sununu, and he also has donald trump, who is offering $5 million if the president would just releases college records. sununu in thekeep at. >> colby is right, they put sununu out there regularly. whenever you say about mitt romney's campaign, is a very disciplined campaign, and they are not putting out spokespersons who are saying what they don't want spoken. >> the president had a good line about donald trump on at jay leno's show. >> the president said, "it all goes back to when we were growing up together in kenya and we were playing soccer and he was n
. virginia has -- depends on defense to a greater degree than every other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on defense and special flavor on federal spending because governmental employment is so important not just in northern virginia which borders and washington d.c. but also in hampton roads and the surrounding localities. host: water the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most large population states, they are many states in one. you ignore the virginia which is about 1/3 of the state's population and produces at least 30% of the boat if not more. that has a low nativity rate. that population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has people with the highest educational level and the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to tidewater and hampton roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is a white-collar and blue- collar and has a large african- american population. it also has a relatively low nativity rape, people
on defense and more than the pentagon says we need. $25 trillion tax cuts would make president george w. bush look like a banker. he must have been asleep at the switch. you said like jerry mcguire "show me the money." you are the business guy. see me back after the election. who can take you seriously? here is my budget although it is not. see me about it after the election. the reason is there are only three options. if you want to repeal tax exemptions you have to cut the tax exemptions on the middle- class and governor romney says he will raise those taxes. or you can do what they have always done in just let the deficit explode again. when the economy goes it'll be a problem. or you could just gut the federal budget. gut funding for education. gut the student loan program. i spent $3 billion of your money to separate the human genome. he know how much economic activity it has generated? $790 billion. barack obama wants to raise it. they want to cut its. one thing they have not disavowed is they intend to cut medicaid by 33% over 10 years and get back to the state of ohio. medicaid provid
. and a means forgoing these across-the-board defense cuts that, this man heinrich supported so that we don't lose another 20,000 jobs next year. that's what i will do in the united states senate and i look forward to the discussion this evening. >> martin heinrich, your opening statement. heinrich: growing up my dad was an electrician. my mom worked in a factory. they worked hard and stretched every dime but there were still tough times along the way. so, i know what it's like to struggle in a tough economy. and i'm running for the senate because i want our children, yours and mine, to inherit the kind of country that we all believe in growing up. an america where you prosper if you work hard and play by the rules. i want you to know that my priorities are mexico's priorities. protecting social security and medicare. tax cuts for the middle class, keeping our promises to our veterans and making college more affordable for everyone. i come home nearly every weekend so i can hold the job fairs to meet with the mexicans and raise my family. i've always fought for the things that matter most t
has a little longer timeframe but payroll cuts are exacerbating the problem. and defense spending has to be on the table, too. >> you gleamed all the critical -- >> if you're going to have an agreement, republicans are going to have to give on tax revenues and democrats are going to have to give on entitlement spending. it's as simple as that. >> it is simple. >> it is real simple. i have repeatedly in the past been in favor of bull simpson. it would have been nice to do it. if we kept kicking the can down the road, the debt has grown bigger and bigger. the longer this goes on, the worse the problem gets. and the more the debt goes up. >> you see congress taking a trench on either side -- a lot of people disliked grover's pledge because they feel like it makes everyone feel more entrenched. you talk about independent spirit. a lot of times independent spirits don't necessarily come to the table in conversation. >> you need people who will serve in elected positions and understand their responsibility to govern. they need to make decisions. we have serious fiscal problems, serious econ
that the district empathized with her but could not waive any potential avenues of defense. >>> school districts are planning for new standardized tests. the switch will give them a chance to slow down and have high levels of zucks with students about what they're learning. the district had previously used star assessments to measure students' progress. about 400 educators attended the summit to learn more about the new standard. >>> a new poll shows that support for the governor's new tax measure has dropped. it is droped from 51 to 48% in favor. >> we're talking about 11 fewer days to go ahead and teach the math, the science and the reading. it's important for our students. >> my biggest concern is giving more money to the senators and having them just spend it away. >> prop 30 would raise the state's sale tax and income tax on californians making $250,000 or more. >>> sports of a measure that would require genetically modified foods to be labeled will hold several rallies today in the bay area. supporters said that consumers should be able to choose whether to eat the foods. and opponents say
